Separated by 1500 miles from the nearest large land mass, Guam saw the first human migrants 3500 or more years ago.  These colonists participated in the longest over-water migration in human history up to that point and became the native Chamorros of Guam and its sister islands.  Their cultural identity lives on despite centuries of colonialism, devastation in war and the influences of the modern global economy.  After bridge construction reveals human burials in an ancient village site, the ALI film team explores the native culture and its people.
